Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mixers Adequate for overnight stay
The Royal Victoria Holiday Inn Sheffield is a mixture of the old and new. There are completely re-furbished rooms in a newer section but we were given one in the original building.
The room especially the bed was comfortable but the furnishings and overall atmosphere were dated and a bit gloomy. In contrast, the bathroom was excellent (small) but with good quality shower, lots of hot water and powerful shower.
Staff all very helpful and friendly, so ok for an overnight stay

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sanderuk2 Nice hotel
It's a nice hotel. The overall room was clean but when sitting on the toilet you could see how dirty the washing basin cabinet was. This clearly had never been cleaned.
The location is also very good. All be it a bit tricky to find out how to get up to the hotel by foot!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great Service
I stay regularly at this hotel and return because of the food and cleanlinees of the rooms but most important is the friendliness of all the team at this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 38suze excellent service, friendly staff
On a recent stay for work the staff were very friendly and helpful and the service was excellent.
Little things like having a fan available in the room and a steam free mirror in the bathroom added some extra touches that were greatly appreciated.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wasteman Sleep quality
The guest rooms are extremely comfortable but my sleep was disturbed by traffic noise. The windows are traditional sliding sash without double glazing and unfortunately i am not used to traffic noise at home.
Apart from that, everything else was excellent.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HellieO Outdated and not what I'd call executive
We were attending a wedding at the hotel and although it is an impressive building with great potential it needs a complete overhaul inside as quite tired. We had booked an executive room as based on pictures was more modern but was disappointed as design was not consistent or particularly modern (mismatched fabrics and random old paintings above plasma TV etc) but bathroom was nice and new. Room was fairly clean on the surface but could do with a deep clean as lots of dust on things like fan and window frames. The windows are very old and did not close fully (jammed about an inch from top and although we mentioned it to staff nothing was done) so I hardly slept (admittedly I'm a light sleeper but don't expect that when paying for a hotel) as there is a constant noise of traffic and comings and goings from hotel. Staff were pleasant but given I went away tired was a bit disappointed overall.

No issues checking in, room was fine but it did have very high ceilings which looked like they needed a bit of a dust.
Breakfast and drinks were fine, lovely surroundings and decoration. Close to centre with ample parking if needed. On the whole an enjoyable stay and I will certainly return.

This was such a contrast to the Holiday Inn we had stayed in the previous night that it was an extra treat.
A splendid experience in all respects
